Tom Evans, Executive Director, Co-Founder
Mr. Evans has over 25 years experience developing cutting edge programs, tools, strategies, and community health models in the public health field. His work on projects including oral health, HIV, mental wellness, helped cement the belief that normative behaviors can be changed over time by promoting help-seeking through creative social awareness strategies. Central to his work is the concept of "narrowcasting" - the strategic utilization of print, web, and visual media to promote help-seeking among specific segments of the population and engage, educate and empower individuals within that priority group.
Mr. Evans enjoys living a healthy lifestyle in Ventura, CA.
